On certain web pages, like www.comcast.net, there is a window that contains various news topics. After a couple seconds, the window changes and displays a new set of topics. It will repeat this for five or six times and then repeat starting with the first.

My computer no longer does this. When the page is first brought up, the initial window will display the first set of topics. But when it is supposed to change to the next set, the window disappears. The browser remains open, and I can still interact with the rest of the page. But that "scrolling news window" is gone.

I noticed this a couple weeks ago, but didn't think much of it. But then my wife noticed it amd thinks I did something to the computer. I hope it is just a simple setting that was changed.

PS. A similar "scrolling news window" is on www.mlb.com

What browser are you using? It most likely is a setting in the browser that needs to be changed.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I'm using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
I've just noticed that I also can't view any videos within webpages. I can hear the sound not no images.
